Mannheim, Germany, January 24, 2018 – From January 24 to 25, 2018, the experts from BASF Master Builders Solutions® are presenting MasterTop 1327-20dB, the latest flooring innovation for decorative applications on booth number 56 at Architect@Work, Olympia National, London.
MasterTop 1327-20dB is a seamless polyurethane flooring system that offers great advantages in terms of room acoustics, design and also sustainability as demonstrated by the recent achievement of BRE Global certification. MasterTop 1327-20dB is the ideal solution for any environment where a pleasing appearance, high walking comfort and minimum noise levels are equally important, such as hospitals, educational facilities, offices, hotels and museums.
It is the only liquid-applied flooring system in the world allowing a reduction of up to 20 dB in vertical sound transmission – e.g. impact noise – thanks to an innovative soundproofing layer also applied in liquid form like all the other components of MasterTop 1327 systems. Thus the application of the flooring is simplified, especially in rooms with complex shapes, and allows maximum creative freedom and individual floor designs.
MasterTop 1327-20dB is also part of Master Builders Solutions’ sustainability campaign: The Construction Chemicals experts together with European customers present selected cases that demonstrate how superior chemistry enables customers to increase their productivity as well as decrease operational costs and carbon footprint. A specific customer success story on MasterTop 1327-20dB and its significant noise reduction at the workplace is available at: www.sustainability.master-builders-solutions.basf.com
MasterTop 1327-20dB is part of a complete series of systems which contribute to optimal indoor air quality and comply with the low emission limits of the AgBB standard (German Committee for Health-related Evaluation of Building Products). Thanks to their extreme durability and easy maintenance, they generate low life-cycle costs.
